I created this intro for my Instagram, but why not post it here as well? Let me do a little re-introduction + bring you up to speed.
I’m Lindley (she/her, pronounced LIN-lee) and I’m a photographer, writer and fat activist. I live outside Seattle, WA in the U.S. with my cat Blue and my husband R. I run Body Liberation Photos, Body Liberation Stock and the Body Love Shop.
My privileges: I’m a white, straight, cisgender person in a hetero marriage. I have some financial support as my business grows.
My intersections: I’m a woman who lives in a largefat/edge of superfat body. (That means that my access to the world is very limited by non-inclusive clothing, healthcare and public infrastructure like bus seats, waiting rooms and chairs. It also means that I am subject to moderate to severe weight stigma.)I live with autism, an anxiety disorder, and a repetitive strain injury in my arms.
I’m currently fighting my way through long-term sleep deprivation and medical weight stigma to manage a new sleep apnea diagnosis.
I love: cats, plants, books, beaches, sour candy, Final Fantasy XIV and unicorns
I dislike: fatphobia, tomatoes, cities, being cold and bees
Boudoir, portrait and small business photography sessions
Diverse and fat-centered stock photos and images
The Body Love Shop: curated fat-positive goods and artwork
Health at Every Size-aligned editorial services, equity reading and consulting
